Australian Design Centre presents Treasures, a special 60th anniversary exhibition. Ten of Australia’s best craft artists have each contributed a work for this celebration and have generously nominated an artist who is producing outstanding work in their field of practice. Together these twenty artists demonstrate incredible skill, talent and artistry of material craft practice in ceramics, glass, textiles, metal and contemporary jewellery.

A New Earth
In response to the Black Summer fires, Margarita Sampson created dramatic textile works that transfigure landscapes into beings, caught between crisis and action. Made using salvaged and handmade textiles, knotted videotape, plastics and beading, these forms evoke the shimmering surfaces left by in the wake of bushfires, the blackened twigs, embers and soot.

Light from Nature
This exhibition at Australian Design Centre, Light from Nature: Kim Dong Wan and Lucy Simpson showcases a cross-cultural collaboration, featuring Kim's glass works incorporating ottchil, and Simpson's representations of dhanggal (mussels) and giba (grinding stones).
